Small body with 15" lower bout dimension and binding only around the body top.Predominantly made as a fully-acoustic version, (although some electric versions do exist), and always without a cutaway. Budget full-size (16" lower bout) archtop, with minimum binding/purfling to body.Some versions in the late 50's/early 60's were characterized by the celluloid rhomboid shape on the headstock.Early ones just had a plain varnished headstock without fascia.The following picture-sets of Hofner archtop and semi-acoustic guitars have been sent to me over the years by their owners.
Another item of evidence is that all examples that have surfaced to date have been in the US.
By the way, the name "Thinline Club" is my own designation, as I have no idea as to the correct model name under which they were retailed.
A very rare guitar that does seem to be an attempt at recreating the "Club" style of a small single cutaway semi-acoustic.
Small hollow-bodied archtops (17" x 13" x 2") with no sound-holes.
Fitted with either one (Model 125 & 127) or two (Model 126 & 128) pickups.
